A Sunny Day In Glasgow

Philadelphia sextet A Sunny Day in Glasgow – so named for the city in which one of the founding (now former) members was living prior to returning to the States and starting the band in 2006 – crafts dreamy, woozy rock music by running their guitars through an ass-load of pedals, slathering on some droney, noisy textures, and gently placing some feathery female vocals on top. I suppose you could call it “shoegazer’” their vibe is vaguely reminiscent of MBV, Ride, Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, and the like. Thankfully, these ladies and lads have actual, honest-to-goodness melodies to go along with the swirly atmospherics and celestial vocal harmonies that tend to nudge things away from the ruminative and downcast to brighter, more uplifting spaces.
